After School Enrichment

The Potter League offers weekly after school enrichment programs to Newport County schools which provide a way for students to experience the type of interactive, animal-themed activities they'll find in our summer camps. Each program aims to foster a love of animals, while teaching compassion and respect for the world around them.
